How soon before he is back in the Dominican - permanently? The fool actually believes he will be elected to the Hall of Fame.

I call for Butt Seligs head. The guy either knew exactly what was going on with the Bonds, McGwires, Sosas, and let it happen or he was too stupid to know what was going on. Either way, there is NO WAY that man should still be the Commisioner and he should go to jail for being a fraud.

You knew, I knew, Selig knew, everyone knew these guys were on roids. The most insulting part to me was, they thought they needed to turn the game into a homerun derby in order to bring people back to the game.

As a baseball fan I enjoyed watching them hit the bejesus out of the ball. I also don't hold anything against them for using the drugs. They worked and they were worth millions to some of them. Awfully tempting.
Unfortunately I don't think we will ever find out who was clean and who was dirty.

It's not. Just a bunch of sanctimonious blowhards in the media wanting to stick their moral dicks in the corpses of millionaires' reputations.

You're concerned with the lying to Congress, which: bad, of course. But Congress never should have been involved.

And I think we can move past the whole era being tainted thing. For one, baseball players have always cheated. Always. And secondly, if the majority of players were using, wasn't the playing field level anyway? I just don't buy this being such a jaw-dropping issue.

perhaps not, however, they were. extremely audacious behavior on the part of those who testified.

if the era is not tainted, how will it be remembered historically??

i honestly do not feel as though the field was level...yes, many were using PED's, however, its a pretty broad stroke to suggest the level of competetion was in any way even

jaw dropping?? not so much. disappointing?? sure

Yeah, in a vacuum I rather it would not have happened. It just doesn't strike me as a giant scarlet "S" on the game. And I just cannot stand the media's hyperbole and blustering over it.

I disagree with Fish on roids being a big deal. It tainted the game IMHO. It is cheating on a completely different level than sharpening your spikes or throwing a spit ball. I do agree with Fish that Congress should have never ever ever been involved. They have or at least should be paying way more attention to real problems.

That said let's talk Sosa. Gutter says he should not be in. Why? Because he corked a bat or Jose Canseco says he did roids? Do I think Sammy did roids...yes. My problem is the same as yours. Nobody has yet prroduced one substantiated testimony, proof, or positive test to prove anything. You can't because one does not exist or at least no known test exists. Amongst the ones to really argue about Bonds, Palmeiro, Mac to me Sosa has zip, zero, zilch proof to keep him out.
